Homosexuals are the bitchiest bitches the world has ever known.
Here we are again, back in the zone where having an alternative view makes you the enemy.
Speak against the fashion and be prepared to be smeared, ridiculed and bullied.
These are the climate change tactics back again… Those who resisted were “deniers”, “out of touch”, “fossils and dinosaurs”, “selfish” and “in the pocket of the oil companies”.
Same game, different story.
The left is again framing its debate so that anyone who disagrees is bashed into a lonely corner… And, if that doesn’t work, pull out the “international embarrassment” card..
Sound familiar? Just like climate change, and the push towards a republic in the late ‘90s, gay marriage has become the latest and greatest moral challenge of our times. The trouble is, it’s not.
Barack Obama beat John McCain [in 2008] for a range of reasons. It happens though that Obama was demonstrably to the left of McCain on issues like gay marriage
Er, not true.
In 2008, [Obama] said: “I believe marriage is between a man and a woman. I am not in favor of gay marriage.”…
He had written on [a] 1996 questionnaire, “I favor legalizing same-sex marriages, and would fight efforts to prohibit such marriages.”
Just two years later, on another … questionnaire, Obama wasn’t so sure. Did he favor legalizing same-sex marriage? “Undecided.” Would he support a bill to repeal Illinois legislation prohibiting same-sex marriage? “Undecided.” Would he co-sponsor it? “Undecided.”
Later years offered greater clarity — and a shift from 1996. Civil unions? Yes. Gay marriage? No.
2004 … “I am a fierce supporter of domestic-partnership and civil-union laws. I am not a supporter of gay marriage as it has been thrown about, primarily just as a strategic issue. I think that marriage, in the minds of a lot of voters, has a religious connotation. …”…
Still, in a 2007 Democratic primary debate sponsored by a gay rights group and a gay-oriented cable TV channel, he spoke instead about his support for civil unions with “all the benefits that are available for a legally sanctioned marriage” — but not for legal recognition of “marriage” between same-sex couples. It should be up to religious denominations to determine whether they wanted to recognize that as marriage or not, he said….
In November 2008 … “I believe marriage is between a man and a woman. I am not in favor of gay marriage.”
